Lose Weight by Eating High-Water-Content Foods First

A common diet trick is to drink a glass of water before you eat, to give you the feeling of being full faster. However, when you’re hungry you want to reach for food and nothing else. Instead, lose weight by reaching for foods that contain high water content. Watermelon, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, yogurt, soup, cucumbers, oatmeal and pineapples are just a few foods with a high water content. Eating these types of foods before you indulge in higher caloric items will help you feel full faster and will aid in avoiding overindulging. Another benefit of consuming these types of foods is that you will stay hydrated while reducing belly bloat.[1]

When trying to lose weight, start each meal with an item rich in water content. Find most of these items in your grocer’s produce section and start feeling full while simultaneously losing your weight.
